The Davis Block Showroom, located in Soldotna, Alaska, is a two story, 4,413 sq.ft. office building which utilizes Davis Block represented products in order to provide a first-hand visual experience for their clients. They have supplied the Kenai Peninsula with redi-mix concrete for residential and commercial construction over the past 35 years. Our aim for this project was to create a welcoming environment where they could proudly display a wide selection of stone and concrete materials, which would otherwise be difficult to transport for showing to potential customers. The space allows for interaction with these various types of materials, giving the client a distinct way of browsing through different options. Throughout the building, lighting was essential in order to present an accurate portrayal of their products. We integrated a second level into the design which includes an office, kitchen, and restroom, making daily office work both more enjoyable and efficient.
Kim Professional Building
Chuck Kim selected K+A to program, design and supervise construction of a commercial building on a property fronting the main roadway in the ‘River City’ Soldotna, Alaska. The Kim Professional Building is comprised of four commercial condo spaces totaling 11,368 sf. A southern exposure provides abundant natural lighting. A unique stacked bond concrete form masonry unit provides a cast concrete wall inside the exterior insulation system. This thermal assembly provides a high performance exterior wall system that has proven to be very energy efficient. The post and beam interior structural system allows for large open areas adding flexibility to the individual condo space layouts.
K+A also was selected to design the tenant improvement of Legends Dental in the Kim Professional Building. This 2,056 sf. tenant space includes four operatories, two offices, a laboratory, sterilization area and break room. A warm and inviting interior was developed to provide patients with a pleasant experience with their visit.
